This is a hard drill, but it helps pitchers feel the position that many of the top big league pitchers get into which helps them throw harder.  The sitting part isn’t super hard, but driving out from that position is definitely challenging.


A great angle of Chapman getting into his back leg and then driving out.  He makes it look easy.


Nolan Ryan was one of the best at it.
